Welcome to June.
Seems we've fallen right into Summer.
Hot and Humid.
We did have some more rain, a few days ago.
Three quarters of an inch in the rain barrels.
It would be nice, if this rain every week or so would keep up.
I'm not going to count on it, though.
But, the plants are really loving it.
The Fenced Yard is doing better and better.
Things are beginning to fill in.
I'm hoping this combination lives up to my vision.
My plan is a lush FULL bed.
A lot of these plants are 'Deer Resistant'.
At least they can't get to them through the fence.
This Lantana is in the front Island Bed.
So far, there are still blooms on it.
The deer don't seem to like the gold-colored blooms.
They do eat other colors. At least the do in MY garden.
Other people in the neighborhood don't seem to have that problem.
The daylilies are beginning to bloom.
They're a little slower here. I've always had evergreen daylilies before.
These are not. Maybe that's the reason they're slower to bloom.
I'm liking this old, leaking fountain/planter. It's taking off nicely.
I got two new Talavera pots, for Mother's Day.
My collection is growing.
In fact, I 'need' another one. A dish size, for some small succulents.
I ran in to King's Feed, looking for one.
They didn't have what I want. But, I did find a Peter's Purple Monarda.
It's a bit gangly. But, some little new plants are there, too.
I bought two of these pots. Now, I have to figure where to put them.
One will go here, where the Philippine Violet didn't make it.
The other one....I don't know yet.
Now...what do I do with that two foot long stem? Cut it back?
Yes, I got the joy of doing my civic duty.
See the summons no.? That gave me good odds for NOT being chosen.
I came home early.
And, finally....everybody's got to believe in something.
I believe in OVER PLANTING pots.
But, hey...you don't have to wait as long to get that FULL look.
'Til next time....
